Tracy Caulkins Biography
Tracy Caulkins was born January 11, 1963 and is a former three time gold medal winning swimmer from the United States.
Caulkins is perhaps best remembered for her adeptness at all four major competitive swimming strokes; the butterfly, breaststroke, backstroke, and freestyle. Caulkins won national championships and set American records in all four strokes over a range of distances as well as in the individual medley events, which combine all four strokes over the course of a single race. This versatility brought Caulkins many titles and awards, and as a result she is considered one of the greatest swimmers of all-time. By the time she retired from swimming, Caulkins had set five world records and an incredible 63 American records (more than any other American swimmer, male or female).
In 1978, Caulkins won the prestigious James E. Sullivan Award given by the Amateur Athletic Union, and was the youngest ever winner of the award at the age of 15. In perhaps her most impressive performance, Tracy won five gold medals and a silver medal in Berlin, Germany at the world championships. Like many other American athletes, she was expected to put in a great performance at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, Russia (which was then the communist controlled Soviet Union). However, following the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, President Jimmy Carter announced that the United States would not be sending an Olympic team to Moscow in protest to the invasion. Caulkins was consequently not able to compete at the 1980 Olympics.
Caulkins' ultimate legacy may be that of the best all-around swimmer in American history. While her career did not have the longevity of Jenny Thompson or the Olympic medal talleys of Mark Spitz and Michael Phelps, Caulkins is highly rated in American swimming history.
The gold medals won by Caulkins are carved onto the walk of Tennessee history at the Bicentennial Mall State Park in Nashville.
